Stealing Shakespeare


A real life Shakespearean drama about the theft of one of the most precious books in the world

When Englishman Raymond Scott walked into a library in Washington D.C. carrying a stolen Shakespeare book, he never thought he’d be at the centre of a drama worthy of the Bard himself.

What followed was an extraordinary tale involving the world’s most eminent Shakespearean scholars, the FBI, a former bodyguard of Fidel Castro and two stoic detectives from Durham CID.
